Explore Hidden Gems of the Library
- Have you noticed the art located in and around the library? Discover our sculptures, quilts, paper mache works, bronze statues, vintage posters and more in a video, see most of the art with a 'walk' through via Google, or stop by the Information Desk to get a map and see the art in person.
- Get a quick look at our sorting system when it was first set up. The sorter room is our hub for all returning materials and is visible through the glass doors on the way to the Children's section.
